The Nonstationary Loss Queue : a Survey

  title={The Nonstationary Loss Queue : a Survey},
  author={Khalid Abdulaziz Alnowibet},
The nonstationary loss queue is of great interest since the arrival rate in most communication systems varies over time. In view of the difficulty in solving the nonstationary loss queue, various approximation methods have been developed. In this paper, we review several of these approximation methods and present a new technique, the fixed point approximation (FPA) method. Numerical evidence points to the fact that the FPA method gives the exact solution.
